Christmas Pierogi!
Get set for Christmas...with pierogi!
Nov 21
7:00 PM

For as long as I can remember, Christmas in my family began in the kitchen with piles of flour and steaming pots of water that go into the making of pierogi. In this fun, hands-on workshop, Maria Rozynska leads you through the process of making traditional Christmas pierogi from scratch.

You’ll start the class with a warm borscht broth, then dive into learning how to knead, roll, fill, shape and boil homemade pierogi from scratch, using traditional Christmas fillings including:

Dried Mushrooms from Poland (literally, sent over by my mum!) with Sauerkraut & Onions

Kasza with Farmer’s Cheese

Fresh Prunes for dessert

Singing while making food, or indeed during any work, is a deeply Polish tradition. While we work guests enjoy a traditional folk song or two by Maria. There will also be a short presentation on Polish cuisine and you’ll get a chance to try all your pierogi in class with a sour cream and warm caramelized onion topping. Extra Christmas dishes pre-made by Maria are also served, such as sledzie (pickled herring), slowly marinated in olive oil with chopped onions, garlic and bay leaves with a side of fresh light rye bread. Leftovers can be taken home and frozen (if you can resist eating them on the way home 😉

Traditional music, food made by you and and the history behind it, now WHAT could be better than this?!

A self-taught cook, Maria grew up in a Polish household observing her mother, grandmother and great grandmother knead, roll, shape, mallet and whisk consistently yummy Polish cuisine picking up generations of knowledge.

What started as a passion turned into a business. Maria now teaches others how to make their own traditional Polish food while singing songs from the Polish Highlands in order to keep alive her families recipes and traditions.

A communal meal follows each of her workshops where guests can eat their creations while songs are sung and stories shared 🙂
